So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.”
Have not been invented yet.”
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . .
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.”
And you drop one on the floor–
Maybe they won't let you
Dry the dishes anymore.”
She can love others and still love thee.”

"well, an old stump is a good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down. Sit down and rest."

And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first–it wet the bed.”
